Sports log: Pistorius’s brother also faces charges

OLYMPICS

The murder case involving Olympic star Oscar Pistorius took another unexpected turn Sunday with the news that his older brother, Carl, is himself facing charges for the death of a woman in a traffic accident. Carl Pistorius faces a charge of unlawful, negligent killing for a 2008 road death, Kenneth Oldwage, the Pistorius family lawyer said. The accident happened in Vanderbijlpark, south of Johannesburg. The charge of ‘‘culpable homicide’’ was dropped and then reinstated and will be challenged in court, the lawyer told the Associated Press.
